How do I prepare for my activity?
Your Travel Buddy should provide you with all the information you need to help you prepare for your activity. However here are some handy tips to help you:
- What to wear: Are you going on a bike tour, hiking or just for a walk? Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and adequate clothing for the type of activity you’ve booked.
- What to bring: We recommend bringing water, snacks, sunscreen, hats, subway passes and a bit of extra change. Of course, if you are going to a foodie activity in winter maybe forget the snacks/sunscreen.
- Where to meet: The meeting point set by the Travel Buddy should be easy to find. The Travel Buddy will give you a brief description of themselves so they are easy to identify. You can also send a direct message to your Travel Buddy to arrange the exact details of what to look out for.
- When to meet: Remember to check the date and exact timing of your reservation. These are both listed in your booking confirmation email.
